‘An eerie yet beautifully complex and meditative sensorial experience’, promises the blurb of Dunes Rolling Down Dunes for this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival. The show is the creation of emerging Melbourne-based dancer and choreographer, Benjamin Hurley.
Hurley is ‘a uniquely captivating dance artist‘ and has developed this work over the past three years, the result of several dance residencies in the outback and in Europe. Talking with ArtsHub, they describe the work as a ‘projected memory bank, drawing from all my past artistic practice,’ demonstrating how artistic works rarely sit in isolation. This work, like many others, is the result of continual practice and, in this economic and political climate, perseverance.
